If your RTO is deemed non-compliant after an ASQA audit, you have the opportunity (in most cases) to address the non-compliance and provide additional evidence: “Rectifications”.

We have designed this webinar to identify and explore the types of evidence that RTOs can provide to demonstrate compliance against the Standards for RTOs 2015, evidence that also meets ASQA's new audit model.

In a learning environment that changes constantly, communication is a crucial skill set for trainers. Beyond presenting information and leading discussions, it is vital for a trainer to be highly skilled in all aspects of communication. 

What data are you collecting and analysing to demonstrate that students are receiving the right amount of training? What evidence can you produce to prove that delivery models and educational support are relevant to students’ needs?

On 1 July 2020, the changes to the National Vocational Education and Training Regulator Amendment Act 2020 come into effect. These changes will affect RTO compliance requirements and procedures for reviewing regulatory decisions.

When an RTO engages a third party to deliver training and/or conduct assessments on its behalf, the RTO is ultimately responsible and must ensure the quality meets the required standards.

Complaints about RTOs training and assessment services are the most common complaints received by the VET regulators.  Providing students with suitable educational support services, will help your RTO to improve completion rates, client satisfaction, compliance, and enhance your RTO’s reputation.

Insources has supported more than 500 RTOs to go through the re-registration process with ASQA. During this live session our principal consultant Javier Amaro, will share some insights with you and provide you with a detailed list of suggested evidence for audit.

RTOs must provide accurate course information to prospective students, and support them to enrol in a suitable course.

All educational institutions should have copyright compliance measures in place to ensure that they do not infringe the rights of third party copyright owners, for example by copying or communicating excerpts from books, periodicals, images or websites.

RTOs must have quality controls in place to ensure only students who have completed all assessment requirements are issued with qualifications and statements of attainment. 

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is an essential part of our VET system, yet one that causes students a great deal of stress, and seems to take trainers, assessors and managers out of their comfort zone.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic RTOs have been forced to change their training delivery and assessment arrangements to minimise or eliminate face-to-face contact between learners and trainers.

Do you map your training delivery to the unit(s) of competency? Is your training delivery consistent across all trainers in your RTO? How do your trainers feel about developing session plans?

Currently, RTOs must complete Compulsory Quality Indicator Questionnaires to evaluate learning programs. Are these Learner and Employer Questionnaires giving your RTO the necessary data for continuous improvement? 

This webinar will provide examples and strategies on how to address language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) requirements and how to unpack foundation skills in a unit of competency in order to write assessments.

Under the Standards for RTOs 2015, training and assessment must be delivered only by trainers and assessors who can demonstrate current industry skills directly relevant to the training and assessment being provided.

We have identified an increasing trend of RTOs buying assessment tools from commercial providers, instead of developing these assessment resources in-house.

Industry practices change at an incredibly rapid pace. RTOs must update their offer of training products to maintain industry relevance and meet their needs. Often RTOs will be required to add new courses to their scope of registration.

This webinar will present strategies that RTOs can implement to develop more systematic approaches to effectively engage industry to provide work relevant training and assessment, and maintain the vocational skills and knowledge of their trainers.

The outcome of mapping is used as a "road map" for trainers and assessors, and helps RTOs to demonstrate compliance in training delivery and assessment.

The RTO is ultimately responsible for ensuring transparent and accurate information about its services and performance is accessible to prospective and current learners and clients, regardless of any arrangements to have this information distributed on behalf of the RTO.

Leading an RTO requires a clear understanding of legislation and regulations relevant to RTO’s operations.

Assessment practices underpin the integrity of every Qualification and Statement of Attainment issued by a RTO, and the credibility of such certificates.

As a CEO, or RTO Manager, part of your job requires understanding the complexities of the VET sector, and keeping yourself up-to-date with legislative and regulatory requirements for RTO's.
